Beautiful Michigan

We recently took a trip to Northern Michigan. It. was. gorgeous.

The shores of Mackinac Island proved to be blue, clear and sparkling. Our highlight was the 8 mile bike ride around the entire island, where you can stop off the trail whenever you like to skip a few rocks.

Another favorite was the Dune Climb at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. They rolled in it, they ran in it, they loved it.

The beaches were beautiful - and had the best rocks for making artistic creations.

The scenic drive and a hiking trail led us to some pretty spectacular views.

And a quiet dock on Big Glen Lake was perfect for splashing and for solitude. Michigan: we'll be back.

New House, New Light

It's fun to explore the new light in our new house. I love the way it comes in the bedroom window in the morning, the way it streams in the empty formal dining room window (that's not currently a formal dining room) and the way that it bounces into the front porch.
